I’m Hoping The Movie Brings Me Some Cheap Books

I’m getting ready to go see A Wrinkle in Time soon. I loved the book when I read it as a kid back in the early eighties, and again as an adult in the late nineties. I flipped out when I saw the trailer for the movie, the first I’d heard there was going to be one…especially such a big production one. That was also when I heard it was a series, five books total (A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time). I’ve never read the other four.

However, the movie could help this out. I typically get most of my books at the local Goodwill. $1 per trade paperback, half that on 50% off days (I usually wait until 50% off day to go). The books that end up there tend to be more popular ones, just given the chances of what people have and decide to donate. The movie though, I bet more people will buy the books than have done so in a long time. Then, once they get done with them, more people will donate them. If they donate, I can get them for 50 cents.

I like the way my odds are improving.
